a game like no other - basically the premise is that you’re a tee and your goal is to reach the finish on whatever map you’re playing. there’s tons of maps all by different people so there’s always something to explore.

there’s tons of special mechanics too, and the more you improve the more things you learn. in this game, there are these blocks called “freeze blocks” that make you unable to move. you can play with friends who can help you pass the level. there’s tons of insane clutch moments where only one guy isn’t in the freeze and he/she has to help everyone out - it can be really intense.

Probably one of my favorite games. Very rewarding once you get into it, but it can be very challenging and frustrating, especially when you’re starting to learn the mechanics. There are a lot of little nuances which can be challenging to get used to. Even after 500 hours, I don’t feel as though I’m even close to scratching the surface of what this game has to offer. There are many game modes, some more casual than others, but if you have a group of friends to play with it’s a great time. If you don’t have a group of friends, then you’ll have a pretty easy time of making some in-game. Most everyone’s nice and willing to help you. If you play enough, you’ll get to know most people and they’ll get to know you. Be patient with this game, it’s worth it if you give it some time.

Tallowmere 2: Curse of the Kittens

Tallowmere 2: Curse of the Kittens

THIS IS THE BEST. GAME. EVER. No hyperbole, no exaggeration, no lie. I would have said that for Developer Chris McFarland’s first Tallowmere, where I have over 1300 hours playing, by far the most of the nearly 2000 Games I own on Steam…but his Tallowmere 2 scratched every itch for a second game I didn’t even realize I itched for. Not only masterful, and a perfect improvement on the Original, IMHO, but you get to a point where you can play reflexively; eliminates stress, pain and any downfall while making for a challenging, exhilarating second outing. Pandemic? Tallowmere 2. Bonkers US Election? Tallowmere 2. Worst Year ever? Best Game ever. I’d gained 200 hours playing the Tallowmere 2 Demo, prior to the long-awaited E.A. Release Dec. 4th…and it STILL feels like new. I suppose it could be worse that the biggest shining, glowing Event of the Year is the release of a Game, rather than some personal accomplishment…but then…this Game really is THAT good! Too bad I couldn’t Nominate THIS game a week prior to its' release. IT’S. REALLY. THAT. GOOD. (UPDATE- NOV 2021- I DID NOMINATE THIS GAME FOR 2021 GAME OF THE YEAR!! So, I DID get my chance to Nominate what I STILL adamantly maintain is the BEST. GAME. EVER.!!!! My play-time since I wrote this review should speak for itself, too :) I hope y’all have found as much enjoyment with Tallowmere 2 as I have :) )

I’ve wrenched myself away from Tallowmere 2: Curse of the Kittens in order to proclaim it a bloody triumph. “Wrenched” is both completely honest & a total lie: I’d’ve played for another three hours straight with nary a pause for any reason – mind-blowing sex included – if I’d not been brutally murdered the second I thought, “I am now an unstoppable god.”

I’m already itching to duel katanas again, so I’ll make this as quick as I am in bed & hopefully return for a more thorough review at a later date. Suffice it (for now) to say that fans of clever quick roguelikes are in for a treat. Fans of beautiful pixel art are also in for a treat. Fans of violence & gore are similarly in for a chunky, oozing treat.

Thank you Derek for the fun time.

777 hours are a lucky number.

This is a really hard game, and very punishing, but it’s also really nice. While it’s hard the difficulty is adjusted by your objectives. Want to just beat the game? Good luck, it’ll take a while but you’ll do it reliably with some effort. Want to get the hard ending? It’s reasonably harder, but you’ll be ready for most of it once you have to do it. Want to get the special ending? Good Luck. That’s all. It’s a challenge ridiculously hard and long, but you’ll enjoy the way.

I stumbled upon KFCowboy when I was browsing Steam for new games to play. The game title first caught my attention because it sounded unique and funny and the game looked quite fun from the trailer too.

I would best describe the game as a mix of Celeste-like platforming with bullet-hell action of Enter The Gungeon. You’re constantly fighting enemies and dashing thru spiked platforms while avoiding getting hit. The gameplay is quite challenging, but I like that the runs are fairly short so it never feels tiring when going for another one. You gain exp the more you play and you are able to unlock new weapons with exp. Each weapon has it’s own unique boosts and you are able to stack different ones together to create different builds so it adds a lot of depth and replayability. The enemy variety is great and there’s even some friendly NPCs that you meet along the way that help you out. Also, the music in the game SLAPS. It’s catchy and has a western/Chinese vibe to it.

Great game to play with friends. You can choose to play the roguelike run mode (PVE) or arena style shooter mode (PVP). The run mode is pretty chill and it took me and my friends a couple of hours to beat the game. We unlocked hard mode, which is the regular mode but ON STEROIDS. The platforming and enemies are way harder, but I quite like the challenge. Each weapon has their own unique upgrades which makes the game play very differently from run to run. The PVP arena mode is so much fun too. It’s definitely a lot more fun the more people you have so I recommend playing with at least 4 players. There’s online matchmaking, but I think the player base is still quite small so I wasn’t able to matchmake with other players. I highly suggest grabbing this game with a few buddies for the PVP.

As a fan of the first Mega Man X game, and not really any other Mega Man game (at the time of this writing since I’ve not really put time into other Mega Man games), I have to say this game is amazing. The RNG can be frustrating, but it’s also what sets this game apart from Mega Man X. The randomly generated level layouts and powerups make each playthrough a new adventure, but also similar enough to where you start to get better at passing certain obstacles.

I like to play as Nina a lot since she controls just like X and uses a buster gun, but Ace can be fun too with his sword. The best part is that you can have BOTH! That’s right! 2 players can team up to run and gun through the levels (or more like slice and slash for the Ace players). Although a “balanced” team is Nina + Ace, both players can be Nina if they wish, or they can both be Ace! No limitations in that regard, which is great! The game even uses an alternate color scheme for the 2nd Nina/2nd Ace so that it is always crystal clear which one you are controlling during cooperative play. Nina is blue, 2nd Nina is red. Ace is red and 2nd Ace is blue. No matter who you play as, one of you will be red and the other will be blue.

20XX is one of the best Mega Man experiences out there, and is currently my favorite game of all time. While this game is definitely worth the $15 price, I’ve seen negative reviews from players who did not read the description, or simply don’t know what a roguelite entails. Maybe it’s silly to hope that they’ll read the reviews by chance, but it’s worth a shot.

Roguelite Details

20XX has permadeath, which means you have to beat all 8 “robot masters” and the two Sigma-esque stages with their respective bosses all in one go. This will be a lot trickier than normal, since the levels are generated using hand designed segments, so memorizing the levels isn’t an option. To compensate for this, there’s a variety of powerups that you can receive along the way which will make the trip easier, and they are much more powerful than you would fine in an X game. You’ll be receiving large boosts to your damage, speed, jump heigh, health, and max energy. There are also more unique powerups, like shooting through walls, different busters/blades, a front facing dash shield, etc. In addition, pits and spikes do not instakill you, so don’t worry about that.

Killer Queen Black

Killer Queen Black

This game’s primary method of finding games or people to play with is their discord. However, there is severe nepotism and bias between the devs and a specific discord moderator that leads to someone being banned from their discord permanently for something they stated in the game itself. Nowhere in the discord did this so called person do anything against the rules, but because of something they said in the voice chat in game, they received a permanent ban from their discord. This led to them not being able to find people to play with, people GAMETHROWING whenever on a team with him or his friends, and they were essentially cut off from the entire community as a whole. All of this due to something they said in voice, and they weren’t banned off the game. The moderator that has nepotism with the devs mentioned that gamethrowing was not as big of an issue because they were doing it while on the team with the person in question.

Is this a Jojo’s reference?

EDIT: I left this as recommended so that people can see this honest review of a game I had once been hopeful for.

I have been a huge fan of the arcade version called Killer Queen and had been stoked about a version of the game coming to PC and Nintendo Switch. I managed to play in the beta and was in complete awe of the game. I was hooked and loved it so much. It was such a fresh take on the arcade version.

There were issues during beta that have been addressed and I had hoped that they would have been taken care of. Sadly, after the games launch, I noticed that they had not been fixed. They were some adjustments made such as berries being lobbed instead of being thrown as if it were shot out of a canon, which was a good change, but they reverted the increased cooldown to 1 second that causes games to go incredibly fast on certain maps. They were changes to certain maps that have managed to make the econ victory condition met with such insane ease. I have talked with some of the developers numerous ways on how that map can be improved and most were blown off. There has been little to no change in improving the game on a competitive level to make other victory conditions possible.

People will inevitably compare this game to Shiftlings - maybe even call one of them a knockoff. Despite both games having some identical game mechanics, they are very different games. It’s similar to Halo versus Doom. Both are FPS games where a green marine blasts through unnatural creatures, but the gameplay is not the same. Having played around 5 hours both shifty games, I’m making a short comparison.


  • Shiftlings singleplayer/co-op is both the same game, in singleplayer you just switch between characters

| Factor | Rating | Description |

| Gameplay Loop | 7 | This game is basically no-nonesense fun platforming. It knows what it wants to be and sticks to that. Getting past levels is pretty easy, but every level has these orbs, a secret area, and one bonus thingy to collect - which makes for a fun enough experience. There’s 4 worlds, and we found the 2nd one to be the most fun in terms of the quality of each and every level. Some of the later levels can start repeating the same ideas every now and then, but the game easily managed to stay fun for us through the 10h runtime. I do think I’d have rated it even higher with an even more crisp runtime. Just remember one thing, do not skip on the bonus levels. They’re the best content and the most memorable bits of the game for us. |
